Walsall are desperate not to lose on-loan West Brom striker Tyler Roberts.
Roberts is out of contract at Albion this summer meaning clubs outside of England can sign him for a set compensation fee of just £300,000.
“We're still talking to Albion because we want to keep Tyler," Saddlers boss Jon Whitney said.
“I think for his best interests, he should stay. I think young players need to play games – under-23 football is not what Tyler needs.
“It won't motivate him and it won't help him to develop.
“I'm hoping, because we've got such a great relationship and understanding, that we will know this week.
"That helps me then because then I know if I've got to replace him."
